    They've got us where they want us because Obama agreed to the sequester. His repeated failure to recognize that they intend to DESTROY government has cost us dearly. It was his supreme miscalculation at the start, he thought they would be bipartisan on health care reform. They were not. They strung him along until Scott Brown was in office. Then we got what we have today.

    He persists in acting as if the Republicans were a political party rather than a gang sent into with monkey wrenches to stop the wheels of government, to sew distrust IN government, and to finally bring the big governmental programs, social security and medicare, down.

    They deserve a lot of credit for what they have been able to accomplish with control of over one house, to the extent we ever credit criminals for their ingenuity in flouting the law and breaking and entering.

    If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.

      knows who they are.

      He is a very intelligent man.  I refuse to believe that he keeps getting the wool pulled over his eyes over and over and just like Charlie Brown, never expects it.  

      He knows what he is doing.

        I am sure there is comfort in that belief.

        If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.
